[28.08.23] Deposed Head of Kyrgyz Human Rights Committee Says His Removal Was Illegal

Ramazan Dyryldaev, who was replaced as chairman of the Kyrgyz Human Rights Committee (KHRC) on 25 August has issued a statement saying that his removal was illegal, centrasia.ru reported on 28 August, posting the text of Dyryldaev's statement. Dyryldaev has insisted for more than a year that Bolot Tynaliev -- who was chosen by a special conference to replace him -- and others who took part in the special conference are not members of the KHRC. According to Dyryldaev, Tynaliev left the group of his own accord, so the terms of the KHRC's charter prevent him taking over the chairmanship. As for Dyryldaev, he can only be properly removed by the KHRC board. He linked the action of the special conference to a months-long campaign by the authorities to discredit him.
